“The doyen of prose writers in Irish is Seán Mac Mathúna. His latest novella, Doras, Fuinneog, Scuab (Leabhar Breac, €9), relates the adventures of two recently homeless teenagers who stumble across each other in the backstreets of Dublin and form an alliance. Joined by a stray dog, they leave the city to elude the authorities, desperate to find somewhere they can feel safe. Mac Mathúna writes a captivating story in a style that readers of all ages will find both exciting and accessible.” — Cathal Poirtéir, The Irish Times.
